"The Telomerase Revolution is a remarkable book, telling a fascinating story that pulls together at last a single coherent theory of how and why growing old leads to so many different forms of illness. It also offers a tantalizing promise that we might soon know not only how to cure and prevent age-related diseases, but how to reset the aging process itself. Michael Fossel is a radical optimist."
Matt Ridley, author of Genome and The Rational Optimist
"For a more optimistic glimpse of the future, try Michael Fossel's fascinating account of how we might halt and reverse the process of aging. Mr. Fossel argues that the mechanism behind all chronic diseases of old age, even Alzheimer's, lies in the shortening of chromosomal repeats called telomeres. Given that all cells are equipped with a gene capable of preventing that shortening, and some use it, why not try switching that gene on indie people's bodies to halt aging? It may not be easy, but it's unlikely to be impossible. Aging might be cured one day."
The Wall Street Journal
"Telomerase Therapy breaks down centuries of human thought on aging and uproots outdated ideologies that have led to nothing but worthless snake oil products. Dr. Fossel's exciting book is opening doors to extended healthspan that can change human history, and it’s all grounded in solid scientific research."
Noel Patton, founder and chairman of TA Sciences
"Michael Fossel’s compelling argument for the telomere approach to reversing aging isn’t just worth a lookit’s like reading the words of Virgil as he leads us along the mysteries of aging."
Alexey Olovnikov, PhD, Institute of Biochemical Physics and Russian Academy of Sciences
Aging is not an irreversible degenerative process, but an epigenetically determined physiological mechanism, which must not be confused with age-related diseases caused by lifestyle choices. Here, we have an effective and clear guide to understand how we get old and how to tame aging in a few years.”
Giacinto Libertini, MD, member of the Italian Society of Evolutionary Biology
"As a follow-up to his previous publications on the subject, Dr. Fossel brings the reader up-to-date on the progress made in understanding the central role of the telomere in aging. . . . Although a couple of decades of effort have ensued and candidate interventions have emerged, there are no strong and clinically proven interventions at the fore; however, Dr. Fossel constructs a very optimistic but realistic view of what may be on horizon to create the Telomerase Revolution."
Donald K. Ingram, PhD, professor at the Nutritional Neuroscience and Aging Laboratory, Pennington Biomedical Research Center
About the Author
The world's foremost expert on the clinical use of telomerase for age-related diseases, Michael has lectured at the National Institute for Health and the Smithsonian Institute, and continues to lecture at universities, institutes, and conferences throughout the world. He has appeared on Good Morning America, ABC 20/20, NBC Extra, Fox Network, CNN, BBC, Discovery Channel, and regularly on NPR. He is currently working to bring telomerase to human trials for Alzheimer’s disease.

This book is written for educated laymen as well as physicians. It is to the point, logical, and In my opinion compelling. Very well written. The explanation on how telomere loss leads to specific diseases alone is worth the read. There is even a reasonable speculation of why evolution would 'select' death for all of us individual organisms.
This is something to get excited about! It looks like the 'real McCoy' of age reversal! Read it and gain hope!
